Sikendar Sellamarican, 51, committed the offence barely two years after his release from prison in 2008 after serving a 20-year sentence for sodomising a 13-year-old boy in 1994. In passing sentence on Wednesday, District Judge Mathew Joseph said that Sikendar was a real danger to young boys and should be locked away for a long time.
